I'd do and have done just what Pee wee said. Sister in a little plywood tab and let thickened epoxy do the rest. I think that happens often, at least it does to me. The bottom panels don't bend up snug to the molds or something. It's not even a thing :)

all; thanks for the support. Hard to see what happened but I am moving forward. I will fill the gap with plywood then do the normal FG. Next will be some cardboard mockup. I think I will cut out only a door opening into cabin. Not sure of the value of the "window" cutouts either side of the entry way to cabin. Found a porta-potti that should fit right behind the console in the cabin.....Thetford 135. Anyone used one?

Cut station c upper cabinet frame wrong, glad I caught it prior to adding it in. Now seems to fit. Cut hatch for frame “A” now; seemed easier than try to cut it in place. Laminated “roof beam sisters” now also. Progress but a lot to do. Had my Urolift completed last week. Google it; most of you probably need it or will......😁

Nice thread. Sheer line looks awesome in the flipping pic, but I’d like to hear more about Burning Man. :P

Keep it going. You’re a few months ahead of me!

Salty’s right; lots of fussy fitting now. Burning Man was on my bucket list. @69 you need to start emptying the bucket. Went with my niece who is a hard core burner. Pretty hard to describe. Really harsh; 100+ most afternoons. Those in RVs do pretty well but I camped. Great people; very giving. A lot of electronic dance noise (music) and some great music if you look for it. Artwork is amazing.
